Very Good – These antique Victorian 18ct gold garnet diamond & earrings are in lovely condition. The metalwork is in superb order with hardly a sign of any wear and a perfect shine. The garnets have some very light abrasions, only noticeable under a 10x loupe. The diamonds are fantastic with no chips or nicks, and an excellent shimmer.
